Bulls' Rose says he's 'far away' from returning

  •  

DEERFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose says he's "far away" from returning from knee surgery.

Sidelined all season, Rose has been practicing and traveling with the team. But in an interview with USA Today posted on Tuesday, he says he has no specific timetable for a return.

Rose says he's not coming back until he's "110 percent" and adds, "Who knows when that will be?" He says it could be any day, within a few weeks or even next year. Asked how close he is to 110 percent, he responded "probably in the high 80s. Far away. Far away."

Rose tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during last year's playoff-opening win over Philadelphia, and the top-seeded Bulls wound up losing to the 76ers.
